Liverpool FC agree Albert Riera deal

Aug 26 2008 EXCLUSIVE by Tony Barrett, Liverpool Echo

Albert Riera

LIVERPOOL have agreed a fee with Espanyol to sign Spanish winger Albert Riera.

The two clubs held talks last night and agreed a compromise figure in excess of £8m, after Riera informed the Espanyol hierarchy he was only interested in moving to Anfield.

That dashed Everton's hopes of hijacking the deal, despite the fact that Liverpool's Merseyside rivals had made a higher offer for the 26-year-old.

The Reds' urgent need for a left sided midfield player was again apparent at the weekend as Yossi Benayoun again struggled in that role before being replaced by Ryan Babel.

With the Dutchman preferring to operate in a more central position, Rafa Benitez identified Riera as the player he wanted to give his side some much needed width.

The former Manchester City man will now have to agree terms with Liverpool and undergo a medical before he is confirmed as a Liverpool player.

But his signing could be concluded before the end of the week as long as there are no late hitches.

Premature or what we haven't even flown him over for a medical. Even them accepting the offer is speculation.


Would be very happy with his signature though

Its not done yet, Deo you should know by now we are in the worst period reffered to as "Parry **** up time" so I wouldn't announce this until its 10000% confirmed and official. :D
That's why I opened it, so Parry can **** it up somehow :D

No really, it may be a bit premature but it will most likely happen, and it won't be a big deal if it doesn't.

we get Riera and Man City gets Robinho...

:(
yep, they deserved to get Robinho while they will lead by a person who will be ready to pay and bring any player they may interest in.

so, as K5 said we are lucky we bought Riera. :hopeful: :)

He'll be a good backup :D, atleast for a couple of years before you sell him to Real Betis for £3 million.
